thats a pretty sick looking ride. :thumbup: i would personally try to replace those white s-works decals with something in a shade of black for a more stealth look.

Thanks for all the comments!

Answer to some q's

The S-Works Toupe is alot stiffer and firmer then the standard version

Nope the frame came that way, its the 2013 colour scheme

Nah I thought it would be wrong to spoil the look for the photos with bottles cages ;)

@Kwalker: The S Works Toupe doesn't even compare to the regular model. Much firmer and no sagging whatsoever. I've had mine for 6+ months, which is two months longer than my last Toupe lasted.

Nice build, Tom!

Excuse me but I must ask, you ride or you eat them :roll: ?

My Toupes (Team, Pro and S-works) last for years and I train almost every day all year.

Back to topic, very nice bike but I would prefer wheels with white stickers. it's too black, almost invisible for my taste!
I have the same, you gonna love it... it's a great frameset!

What do you think about the 9000?

Sweet bike!

Did you use the adapters for the bottom- bracket that came with the frame, in order to use the Dura Ace- cranks? Or did you choose some other adapter? Does it work well, without creaking etc?

Btw, how do you like the Dura Ace 9000?

clean!

Haven't heard much about the Roval wheels.. How are they? Have you rode any similar wheels that you can compare them to?
